Caring for Your Neck and Shoulder Pain with Sachiko Willis
October 4, 2020 @ 12:45 pm - 3:15 pm
Sunday, October 4
from 12:45 – 3:15 pm
with Sachiko Willis
There is really nobody in our modern culture who doesn’t experience some neck and shoulder tension. When it is not addressed it can turn into a chronic problem that causes headaches, jaw tension and general discomfort.
Sachiko will offer postures to help release current neck and shoulder tension as well as re-pattern the muscles and alignment of the neck and shoulders to avoid future pain. Participants will gain more complete understanding of neck and shoulder care to apply to their practice.
This workshop is open to ALL LEVELS of students.
Due to “shelter in place” restrictions this workshop will be held via Zoom. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to take care of yourself at home. Sachiko will lead you through using common household items as props and help you develop a sequence you can practice daily. She will get to see you in your home setting and advise you on what to do. You will have time to ask questions. Plus, you will have a handout and the class recording to support you afterwards.
This course is limited to 22 participants. Students will get a recording of the class.
